Los Angeles’ place in the history of modern ceramics is well established . The development of artists such as Peter Voulkos\, John Mason and Kenneth Price provide the rich background in LA for a continuing investigation in this ancient medium. There has been much re-visitation in recent years of t he accomplishments and influence of those titans of the form\, from Scripps College’s Pacific Standard Time exhibition Clay’s Tectonic Shift\, to LACM A’s recent Ken Price retrospective.

\n

In Software\, a sampling of the current state of contemporary artists in LA who work with clay is brou ght to the foreground\, with an emphasis on contemporary shifts with a more immediate relevancy in both form and subject. As a media choice\, clay and it’s traditions are as old as civilization itself\; as a contemporary form in Los Angeles\, a voice was found for it that was modern\, informed\, and versatile. The five artists of Software offer a range of views that are si multaneously indebted to and break away from the craft traditions and the d ocumented contemporary history of working with clay in southern California.
